More options for organizing discussions?

Question asked by Guntis Smidchens on Oct 20, 2018
Latest reply on Oct 20, 2018 by chofer@morainepark.edu

My class has four modules, each containing a set of about 10-15 items to discuss one-by-one. 

 

We finish each module with a big round-up discussion of the 15 items.

 

Then we go on to another module & set of items & discussions.  But students are encouraged to revisit and continue discussions from previous modules.

 

This gets very messy with only three options in canvas - pinned, unpinned, closed for discussion. If a student misses a day or two, it's impossible to understand all of the ongoing discussions, some current, some less important, and some peripheral. 

 

Is there any way of separating out modules / groups of smaller, related discussions?

 

What I need is some kind of organized "discussion rooms" for sets of related discussions, for example: 

 

Module 1

-discussion 1 (pinned), 9 other discussions (unpinned)

 

Module 2

-discussion 1 (pinned), 9 other discussions (unpinned)

 

etc.

 

Please help.
